New Southern Wesleyan degree will prepare educational leaders
Southern Wesleyan University is now offering a new master’s degree for educators who plan to become administrators.
The university’s new Master of Education in Administration and Supervision, launching in February 2011, will fill a need in the state of South Carolina for highly qualified professionals in school administration and supervision, according to Dr. Paul Shotsberger, dean of Southern Wesleyan’s School of Education.
The 12-course program will provide the opportunity for advanced certification for administrators at the elementary or secondary level.
Shotsberger said Southern Wesleyan offers the highest quality instructors who have academic expertise and experience, as well as necessary resources for students to qualify for any administration or supervision career path they may pursue.
The new curriculum will cover topics including educational leadership, school operations management, public and community relations, ethics and advanced educational research.
“This new program includes three practicum opportunities in addition to a capstone internship, all of which can be completed at your school without requiring you to leave your current position,” Shotsberger said.
The program will be offered at Southern Wesleyan’s five learning centers throughout the state: Central, Charleston, Columbia, Greenville and North Augusta.
